Somebody (Robert?) recently made a post about K M M and Phil Webber likely being phonies. First, let me say that yes, it is easy to cheat, and that cheaters should not deter anyone from pursuing their personal goals, but they are an ugly stain on this site. Many perceived cheaters are just errors. It's not simple to erase data while logging rides manually, and I've seen several obvious fat-finger errors. Last year, The American League of Bicyclists made efforts to keep things as correct as possible, contacting people to ask for confirmation. Like the rider who posted kilometers, which were then read as miles. While we don't see this dedication this year, I was curious about this Phil Webber, and contacted the town of Lac Du Flambeau. To my surprise, they replied. Less surprisingly, they say that the name is not known to them and that it cannot be located in any of their name records or phone books.
